Multi-Unit owner Mekki joins the Madness

Daniel Mekki already owns multiple businesses in Norway. He’s set up a team to manage his portfolio so he can venture out to find new opportunities for growth. In 2022, he moved the United States where he found Teriyaki Madness.

Now, he’s opening a Teriyaki Madness with business partner Matt Sullivan who will operate the neighborhood teriyaki shop. Together, they felt like the TMAD formula just made sense: it’s simple. It’s scalable. It’s unique. It’s fresh. They could go on, but here are Daniel’s actual words:

“I am very passionate about delivering a great product, the freshness of the food and the made-to-order quality stood out to me. I want to provide a memorable experience to customers and build teams of people who are happy to go to work and experience meaningful and fulfilling work.”

Teriyaki Madness has had unprecedented growth over the last few years. Our fast-but-smart growth comes from the experience of our executive team but also the success of restaurateurs like Daniel Mekki. Together, we’re building a culture of successful shop owners.
